‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’: Does Chef Adam Regret Being on the Show and Is He Done With Yachting?

Chef Adam Glick from Below Deck Sailing Yacht may have hinted that he was either finished with the show or yachting when he appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

Cohen asked the question on everyone’s mind about Glick this season. “We got this a lot, what do you want to say about your attitude and people who think maybe you have an anger problem?”

The question prompted Glick to not only answer but he also opened up about how he sees his life in the future. He also revealed that he’s recently spent time with chief stew Jenna MacGillivray but the two aren’t a couple. Plus he later shared that he found it difficult to watch himself on the show.

Is he finished with yachting?

Glick seems to indicate that he is finished with yachting and likely finished with the show, at least for now. “It’s pretty clear I have an attitude while I’m working on this incredibly stressful charter yacht,” he begins. ‘With having a girlfriend that I made very clear I didn’t want this deep relationship early on during a peak season.”

“So I didn’t handle my situation like I could have,” he continued. “I think having an attitude adjustment would have been a huge, huge help for me. But at that time in those circumstances, that level of anxiety, stress, and general workload, coupled with being in a relationship that’s kinda functional, it was very difficult for me. And it shows, there’s no question.”

He adds, “I think that the learned lessons for me, in the long run, is that after 12 years living and working on the open ocean, I’m f**king over it. I’m ready to have a ranch, I’m ready to live my life on land and grow a beautiful garden. And do the things that I want to do, like feed people organically over a fire. And none of those things can I do on a boat.”

Glick says his attitude is different in real life

Later during the WWHL After Show, Cohen asked Glick if he regrets going on the show. Although Glick says he doesn’t regret going on the show, he wonders if perhaps spending more time on land is a better decision. “Seeing myself play out on television for three-plus years has been a rewarding experience,” he says.

“Not only financially, but [also developmentally] being able to watch myself, really allow you to, even if it is in a crazy edited way, it’s still nice to see yourself and sort of reflect on who you are and how you treat people. And I think in those moments is when you see yourself being rude to others, you go, ‘Man, that’s not the right job for me.’ Because I’m never like that in normal life.”

“But then you go, ‘Wow, I’m a total a**hole on that boat,’ you know,” he adds. “So that’s when you gotta sit back and re-evaluate what you’ve been doing for the past decade and maybe think to yourself that there are better options out there that are better suited for you.”
